I’ve been teaching paragraph writing for years and really love using the Explicit Writing method more than any other I’ve seen. It teaches students a specific recipe for writing and gives them the tools they need to take that recipe and make it their own. This method has been successful in my classroom, and in tens of thousands of classrooms, and I think you’ll find it useful for your classroom as well.
To see each set in more detail, please check these out: (All are print and digital)
- Topic Sentences Packet
- Conclusions Packet

WHAT TEACHERS ARE SAYING:
⭐ The best thing about this resource is that it gives STRATEGIES for writing topic sentences and conclusions. That seems to be the biggest challenge for my students. Other resources I bought simply provided examples of topic sentences/conclusions and then asked students to write their own (no instruction or strategies on how to go about doing that). I LOVE the strategies and gradual release of responsibility with this product. Thanks!! Exactly what I was looking for! (Jessica J.)
⭐ Well laid out and organized. This helped my students write amazing topic sentences, and they are on their way to writing amazing paragraphs! (Stephanie R.)
⭐ This was exactly what I needed to help my struggling writers. This creates a visual that my students needed. Now there is no excuse in their writing when I am looking for certain elements. So easy to implement in the classroom. Very worth it. (Shannon P.)
